Rather than sitting and waiting for the snow tires to be put on my car, I wandered about in this interesting area of eastern Toronto.
I knew that there would be plenty of botany to explore:
I expected to find the usual city birds; Rock Pigeons and House Sparrows and I did;
It was a surprise, however, to find a wider variety of species here than anywhere else I have been recently:
The ten hours’ light is abating,
And a late bird wings across,
Where the pines, like waltzers waiting,
Give their black heads a toss. – Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)
Thank you miles,nice to see a completely different area,one most of us would not get to see. You always come up with interesting ideas!!!!!
A neighborhood I’ve never explored. So interesting and lovely. Thanks for sharing your experience.
Wishing you and your family a safe and happy holiday season.
I love exploring Toronto neighborhoods. Hope to do it again! Beautiful birds, too, and– that Wayfaring Tree! Thanks, Miles!
